I was asked to pass this along to anyone who might be going to Taylor's marathon meet & greet tomorrow so I figured I would do just that to help you guys out. There's also been a website set up to discuss the M&G info here.
If any of you guys are able to meet Taylor, I'd love to see your pics.
Where is the event, what time does it take place, and how do I get in?
It’s at the Bridgestone Arena at 501 Broadway in Downtown Nashville, TN.
It is FREE to all fans, so you don’t need a ticket to get in. Enter through the South entrance on Demonbreun Street. Doors open at 6:30AM and the event will last until 9:00PM.
What if I want to camp out before doors open to get a good spot in line?
There is no need to camp out. This is not a ticketed event so fans can come and go all day long. Being the first in line doesn’t guarantee that you will meet Taylor.
Is Taylor really going to meet fans for 13 hours straight?
Taylor would like to meet as many fans as possible within 13 hours. She will start meeting fans and signing autographs around 8:00AM and plans to continue until 9:00PM. She will take a break at around 2:00PM to perform a few songs for her fans inside the arena and then get back to meeting as many fans as possible. So yes, the plan is up to 13 hours.
How do I get to meet Taylor?
There will be a certain number of Taylor Swift Meet & Greet wristbands that will be given out to fans in the following ways throughout the 13 hour period:
- Text to Win contest with your mobile phones every hour at the venue
- Sponsors will have some wristbands to give away during contests at their booths
- A wandering “Fun Team” will be looking for Taylor fans to give wristbands
- Surprise giveaways every hour
When you are given your wristband you will be instructed on a time and section to hang out with other wristbanded fans inside the arena until you are escorted to the line to meet Taylor.
The wristbands will be given out at the venue in pairs and a special wristband will be given out for chaperones.

What will I do while I wait to meet Taylor?

Inside the arena is where all the magic will happen. Fans will get a behind the scenes look into Taylor’s life including items from her Fearless Tour, videos, memorabilia and more. Fans can stay as long as they want and take pictures of the entire experience.
How will Taylor's short acoustic performance work?
